When it comes to snack time for the children, I frequently reach for easy options like cut up fruit, yoghurt, or maybe rice crackers spread with butter and Vegemite. If we have friends visiting during morning or afternoon tea, I love to make a batch of pikelets which are always a hit with the children.

Thank you to Baer AG for sponsoring this post. Please note that the content and opinions are my own.

No prizes for guessing what gets eaten first!

Honey Madeleines

Summer holidays usually mean catching up with my husband’s family in Brittany, France, and this year was no exception. We opted to take the train this summer, a long 12 hour journey but which gives us an excuse to stopover in Paris for a bit of family fun (and shopping for moi).
